“What we have witnessed at the ongoing proceedings of the Appointments Committee is a shocking spectacle of lack of accountability, responsibility, outright disregard for our laws and utter disrespect for this country.
“It is totally unconscionable that when people are dying and when there is a pandemic a cabal will emerge and their only interest is profiteering. This is outright disregard for our laws,” he said in a radio interview.
